Exclamation Removing fuel filter housing help

This is my first time replacing the fuel pump on my truck.
I have everything visible removed on my fuel filter housing, but I can't seem to lift it out. Is there a hose connected at the bottom or something else I can't see? I removed the heater element and post in the middle. The blue hose connected to the front is loose. Drain line is loose. Hose out the back to the pump is loose. Fuel pressure regulator is loose. What did I miss?
Thanks for any advice!

I loosened the hose clamp at the rear base of the housing, but I can't budge the hose...
It seems like there is an elbow that runs into the bottom of the housing. Is this a hose I should cut and replace? Would that loosen the housing?
I'm having a Leinenkugals Berry Weiss and walking away until I get a little help.

Yes at the bottom of the housing there is a hose that connects to the pump. If I were you I would cut it and replace it's only a coupe inches. I took mine out yesterday to do hpop and efuel after I cut it it came rite out.
